I’m happy to announce that we will be hosting our next OWASP Dublin https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Ireland-Dublin chapter event in the T-Cube Dublin office on May 01 2014 at 19:00.
Eoin Keary of BCC Risk Advisory and Matej Saksida of Realex will both be presenting.
There will be networking afterwards, with beer and pizza thanks to BCC (http://www.bccriskadvisory.com/)
Talk 1: "Top 10 defensive Java developer controls"
Eoin Keary - BCC Risk Advisory
In this talk Eoin shall go through a list of developer controls in order to help prevent common security vulnerabilities such those focused in the OWASP Top 10 2013. From input validation to contextual output encoding to crypto-secure storage, Eoin shall call out what developers can do to help mitigate such issues. Many of the mitigations are simple and use established API's such that developer need not be security experts and just use core components to help improve their security posture.
Talk 2: "Social Engineering - The Art of Human Hacking".
Matej Saksida - Realex Payments
Nowadays if you want to hack a corporation or damage a personal "enemy" fast, Social Engineering techniques work every time and more often than not it works the first time. In this talk Matej shall go through what is social engineering is, types of social engineering and related threats. Matej shall call out practical example how to use Facebook to ruin someone's life and what countermeasures can be used against social engineering attacks.
